Delacorte (Bantam Dell)

"Crowded with events that both forecast and mirror the conflicts of today…Ball’s wealth of realistic detail and depth of characterization bring to vivid life this exciting 16th-century historical adventure. I couldn’t put it down, and thought about it for days later."
                                            Jean M. Auel

"An epic adventure with action, suspense, and romance. David Ball brings alive sultan's palaces, the world of corsairs and knights and the realities of 16th-century medicine and combat."
                                            Phillip M. Margolin, author of
Wild Justice
